»Pecos Wilderness, Sangre de Cristo Mountains, New MexicoPecos Wilderness, Sangre de Cristo Mountains, New MexicoThis Labor Day weekend, we're traveling by sleeper bus to backpack in the Sangre de Cristo Mountains of the Pecos Wilderness Area. From trailheads at Cowles and Jacks Creek, we'll hike in five groups of five to ten per group through fir and aspen forests to meadows above the tree line. Each group will enjoy four days of hiking and three nights of camping. The Pecos Wilderness is one of the very best and most memorable destinations in the southern Rockies. Our bus will leave Dallas Thursday night to arrive at trailheads Friday morning. We'll bring you home by 6 AM Tuesday. Complete trip information, including detailed hike options, cost, and sign-up instructions are in this PDF file. As of July 31, all places on the outing were filled. If there are cancelations, we'll add from a wait list comprised of applicants whose check and forms we hold.

»Red River Canoe TripRed River Canoe TripWe'll put-in on Saturday morning about an hour north of Dallas. The rest of the day will be spent swimming and relaxing as we paddle down to our campsite on a large sandbar. Sunday we'll canoe on down to the takeout with a few swim stops on the way. This is a very nice section of the Red River, with very little development along the banks. Some canoeing experience is required and you must furnish your own canoe and camping equipment.
